I’ve been trying to use up the remenants of my dsp from the current catalogue before my new catalogue pre-order arrives (fingers crossed its today!). Today I’ve pulled out the Playing With Patterns pack and I’ve paired it the Hey Girlfriend stamp set so I can also pull out my Blends.
I’ve used a colour scheme of Night of Navy, Purple Posy, Highland Heather and a touch of Pool Party.
I’ve added some Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestones as a finishing touch.
I’ve struggled to use the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP as its bright and has a lot of busy feeling patterns. I’ve pulled it out today and I’m quite happy with the soft pastel effect I’ve managed to create.
I’ve used the palest pattern in the pack as a background and paired it with a colour scheme of Soft Sea Foam and Flirty Flamingo, with just a touch of Calypso Coral paper just to help the dragonflies pop.
The dragonflies are stamped in Flirty Flamingo, I’ve used the blender pen to add some colour to the bodies and then added some shimmer to the wings with Wink of Stella and some pearls to act as a trail behind the dragonflies.
Today I’ve taken a sheet of the True Love DSP from the Love You Always Suite and given it a tropical twist. I love this paper as its black and white so you can add you own colour to match anything else in your crafty stash.
To emphasize the tropical feel I’ve coloured the paper with Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, Granny Apple, Pumpkin Pie, Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry and a little touch of Flirty Flamingo. I’ve left some of the flowers mostly white to add a little “pop” to the background.
To finish the card I’ve added a greeting stamped on labels from the Potted Succulents Dies and also a couple of Mint Macaron Springs to match the springs in the paper. I love how bright and colourful this card is and I’m pleased I’ve managed to get Pumpkin Pie onto a card!
Daffodil coloured Tulips, well why not! I don’t use yellow that much as I’m more of a pink/purple girl so today I used Daffodil Delight as my starting point and paired it with Granny Apple Green.
I’m loving seeing the daffodils in my garden but as we dont currently have any daffodil images I’m using Timeless Tulips.
I’ve simply stamped the tulip heads in Daffodil Delight, filling in the gaps with second generation stamping and then added some leaves and stems in Granny Apple Green. I’ve then added some punched out Tulips to add a little dimension.
I’ve added a length of Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon across the card to add my greeting label, I’m sad this ribbon is leaving us as its been one of my favourites ffrom this catalogue.
A simple card but think its sure to brighten someones day.
